logoDirector: Jeffrey Lando

Writer: Anthony C Ferrante, Jay Frasco (Screenplay)

Starring: Charisma Carpenter, Marcus Lyle Brown, Ricky Wayne, Collin Galyean, Kyle Clements, Corin Nemec, Stephanie Honore


Plot: With ratings running low on a haunted house television show the host has been sent to join the rest of the crew and film in a well-known haunted house. Tom Rule (Wayne), Greg (Brown), Simon (Galyean) intern Bub (Clements) and psychic Heather (Carpenter) set up for the night while presenter Quentin (Nemec) has to meet them there. After Bud mysteriously disappears the group soon discover that the house might really be haunted and they are left with a battle to survive the night in the house of bones.  


Verdict: A simple made for TV film

Story: A very simple look at all the haunted house is it isn’t haunted reality TV crews. It looks at how they all don’t really believe in the supernatural and they just create scares for the shows they have already aired. (4/10)


Actor Review: Charisma Carpenter – Psychic who is new to the team who think she is just an actress, is the only one who instantly believes the house is haunted. Standard performance that doesn’t show enough fear or enough anti fear for the figure that can feel ghosts. (5/10)


Actor Review: Marcus Lyle Brown – calmer character who comes off as the voice of reason in the group, doesn’t believe in ghosts but soon starts once things start happening. Standard performance that doesn’t stand out too much. (5/10)


Actor Review: Ricky Wayne – Greedy producer who wants to make sure the show goes on whatever it takes. Is most likely the star performance in the house where he has a change as the film unfolds. (6/10)


Actor Review: Corin Nemec – Cocky host of the show that is forced to go to the site of the show, spends most of the film travelling to the house and has some very comic moments. Funniest character but isn’t involved enough to really do anything in the house. (6/10)


Director Review: Jeffrey Lando – Starts off giving some very good opening scene behind the person scares before the whole things just unfolds into nothing to scary at all. (5/10)


Horror: Has a couple of jumps but offers no build up to any of them. (4/10)

Special Effects: Some poor CGI graphics. (4/10)

Believability: The idea of haunted houses and reality TV shows looking into them is real but what happens is not. (3/10)

Chances of Tears: None (0/10)

Settings: Creepy haunted house is always good for horror. (8/10)
Oscar Chances
